I have a eps file with a very high resolution. Now when I am trying to import it in my tex file using include graphics I am only able to see part of it, i.e. its cropped. I already played with width, height, keepaspectratio which didn't help.

Here is my simplified tex file:

\documentclass [11pt,a4paper] {article}
%   \advance\leftskip-3cm
%   \advance\rightskip-3cm

And here is the output: enter image description here

eps files are vectorial images, they don't have resolution like bmp files. I believe that the problem is with the bounding box. Try \fbox{} to insert the image inside, to see the box. – Sigur May 5 '13 at 23:51
Well the underlying graph is not a vectorized graph but a picture...that is the reason that resolution matters – Naji May 5 '13 at 23:53
@Sigur how can I set sizes of an fbox? I couldn't find it. – Naji May 5 '13 at 23:56
Just use \fbox{\includegraphics[width=500pt]{Uniform.eps}} to see the box used by the image. Then you can try to fix your problem. – Sigur May 5 '13 at 23:58
11pt article class \textwidth is 360pt and you are specifying 500pt width so it is not going to fit. – David Carlisle May 6 '13 at 0:08

11pt article class \textwidth is 360pt and you are specifying 500pt width so it is not going to fit.

You can use [width=\textwidth] to get a full width figure rather than specify a size in points.

in my simplified everything is working but in original one, its still cropped!! – Naji May 6 '13 at 0:19
you never said but cropped vertically or horizontally? if it is too high you need [width=\textwidth,height=\textheight,keepapectratio] – David Carlisle May 6 '13 at 0:24
Still not working – Naji May 6 '13 at 0:26
@Naji you'll need to make another minimal example that does show the problem and ask a new question. – David Carlisle May 6 '13 at 0:27
Try pdftex. If not, so I have no idea. – Sigur May 6 '13 at 0:54
